The wireless battle in Quebec continues as today Bell has launched a new $80/month nationwide calling plan with 4GB data in the province to compete with Rogers, Telus and Videotron (via MobileSyrup), which includes the following:
Voice and Data Plus 80
- unlimited nationwide calling
- unlimited SMS/MMS
- 4GB of data
- voicemail, caller ID etc
- 10 hours of Bell Mobile TV
- $80/month; ends Monday April 14, 2014
Just a couple days ago Videotron’s latest ad showing off their ‘unlimited’ data plan mocked the Big 3. Videotron offers a similar plan for $5/month less but there’s also a nationwide plan with 6GB data for $79.95/month.
Despite being a promo for less than a week, other competitive Quebec-only unlimited nationwide calling plans actually trump Bell’s plan. For example, you could get Fido’s $60/3GB plan or Koodo’s $55/3GB plan, incur $10/1GB overages and it’ll still be cheaper (and BYOD 10% discount on top too).
Of course, the rest of Canada can only drool at these enticing plans in Quebec and other similar plans in Manitoba and Saskatchewan because these provinces have regional carriers competing with the Big 3.
